Keiretsu Forum announces Seoul, Korea as the newest chapter in its global network.
Situated on the Han River, Seoul's history stretches back more than two thousand years. The city was founded in 18 BCE by Baekje, as one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea.
Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rising global city, resulting from the economic boom called the Miracle on the Han River that transformed it to the world's 4th largest metropolitan economy after Tokyo, New York City, and Los Angeles. In 2015, Seoul was rated Asia's most livable city with the second highest quality globally.
"We look forward to welcoming both investors and entrepreneurs from the Republic of South Korea to our global network," said Williams.
Over the past 16 years, Keiretsu Forum members have invested over $800,000,000 in 810 companies using its chapter and funding syndication model. Funded in 2000 by Randy Williams, Keiretsu Forum today has 47 chapters in 30 cities and 2600 accredited investor members. Keiretsu Forum members provide early-stage capital in the range of $250k-$2million to high quality, diverse investment opportunities. The chapters collaborate on Due Diligence but each member makes his/her own investment decisions in the presenting companies.
